Year Three and After -
Free Sheet Music for Piano!

In year three and after, the free sheet music for piano on this site stretches pianists' abilities.  

Storybook Love - from The Princess Bride

More technique is required, with the use of chord inversions, thicker textures in the melodies, and stretched hand positions.  

Additionally, note reading strays far outside the two octaves around Middle C.  

While much of this page's music is aimed at older students, some of it is easy enough for younger children who have been with you for a while.

A tender love song, saying farewell.

Cat Came Back lyrics and music

There are a lot of ways to use this fun song with the sillly lyrics.

You don't have to be tied to the left hand chords as written... my students like mixing up the descending single-note bass line with the triad chords.


Colorado Trail song

Yes, this is a cowboy song!

Some of your students will love this.  

It is very short, but very pretty.

Three versions in several keys:

  • with guitar tabs
  • with piano accompaniment
  • as a vocal duet

This little piece is a simplified arrangement of the original by T. Van Oesten.  It does have a bit of an ominous sound!
